Create a School Waqf that will educate 360+ students yearly.

Build a Beacon of Knowledge in Ogun State, Nigeria

Our campaign is not just about building a school; it’s about providing a space where our Muslim youth can learn and grow within the tenets of their own faith. Currently, our children face the challenge of attending Christian religious schools, which, while providing valuable education, do not cater to the Islamic teachings and principles we hold dear. Muslims are only 30% of the population in Ogun State, and even less in the area of the School, Igbesa.

An additional challenge is, even if we wanted to send our children to these schools, the distance they travel to and from leaves no room for additional Islamic instruction in the evening, creating a gap in their spiritual and cultural education. We are raising Muslim children in Muslim homes, but with Christian education. This is a choice we are unwilling to make.

Transforming Temporary Measures into Lasting Foundations

Presently, our students are being taught in makeshift wooden classrooms situated at the back of our local mosque. These temporary quarters were made possible by the generous support of Wellspring Endowment, which contributed $2000 towards whiteboards and desks. This stopgap has served its purpose, but it is time for us to move forward. Our vision is to transition from this provisional arrangement into a permanent, well-structured Islamic school, starting the construction as swiftly as our resources allow.

Partnering for Educational Excellence

Wellspring Endowment works to support underserved areas, has partnered with as-Safa Educational Foundation to help create a Waqf for children in Ogun State, Nigeria. We have fortified our efforts through an MOU aimed at educational development, signed by our esteemed director, Dr. Ridwan.

As-Safa Educational Foundation is a certified incorporated body under the Corporate Affairs Commission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, incorporated on 28th of November, 2016 (CAC/IT/NO 92803).

Wellspring Endowment is a federally registered 501c3 corporation located in the state of Texas incorporated in 2014 (EIN 46-0849564).


Given the need of our children to learn in an Islamic environment close to home, we have created a stopgap measure of housing our temporary school in a local mosque. Wellspring provided a crucial assistance in this regard for our temporary classrooms to be created. You can find pictures of these classrooms below as well as a video.

As you can see, this temporary measure will only be effective so long.
